Brad Pitt has signed on for the lead role as a Tennessee hillbilly who assembles a team of eight Jewish-American soldiers to take on the Nazis. Also on board are Mike Myers and Eli Roth. Tarantino is courting Nastassja Kinski, David Krumholtz and B.J. Novak.
Role would arguably be the highest-profile yet for Fassbender, who has begun to draw comparisons to Daniel Day-Lewis for his intense dedication to his work. Thesp emaciated himself to play Sands in the latter stages of his hunger strike.
Fassbender is also attached to play the iconic role of Heathcliff in "Wuthering Heights."
Just because a person is dedicated doesn't mean they are a good actor. I just had to point that out, because they did just compare him to Daniel Day Lewis. You would know Michael from a little movie called 300. I'm not sure what part he will play in this film.
